THE STANLEY N. KATZ PRIZE
Founded in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the Council, the Stanley N. Katz Prize for Excellence in Public Humanities will be awarded annually beginning in 2022.
The award will recognize an organization which has demonstrated significant engagement with and impact through community-focused public humanities work in New Jersey.
“NJCH's longtime leader, Stan Katz, helped shape the Council as an organization that works with scholars across disciplines to serve the New Jersey public, recognizing that public humanities help us bridge divides, promote civic engagement, and give a voice to all members of our society. In this important moment for the public humanities, we hope naming our award honors his commitment to public humanities and ensures a better future for our communities." - Dan Fatton, NJCH Board Chair
